Did You Know?

Case Western Reserve University researchers are studying a strain of "super mice" to understand the effects of extreme exercise on human disease and aging. Amped up on 100 times the normal amount of blood-sugar enzyme, these rodents ran 3.7 miles (.13 is typical) and females gave birth until age 2.5 – that’s the equivalent of age 70 for us human women folk! Go extreme exercise. :)

Who knows what is going on over at Case...but that is one crazy stat...

"Free" Hermes

Good morning Cleveland!

After a a long weekend of milling around Northeast Ohio I have to tell you I love this place (like you didn't know already). Coffee frozen yogurt from Mitchell's, dancing at the annual Greek Festival, good wine with good tunes at Brother Lounge, running down to the new boardwalk at Lakewood Park (to work off the ice cream & wine), Gallucci's, and more.

However, as I was going through piles of "must -read" magazine subscriptions, I realized what we are lacking in is high end shopping opportunities. Why don't we have a cute little Kate Spade boutique for the latest in bright hued totes, shoes & paper? How about a MOMA Design Store to pick up the best in designer posters, note cards or calenders? Or even better; I think we need a Hermès store to go and drool over the infamous patterned scarves complete with bright orange box! Not that I am going to run right out and buy one of each, but it always nice to window shop and dream, right? I digress...

While I can't whip up the retail market in Cleveland, I can let you in on a little too can get a FREE Hermès Kelly Bag (watch out Katie Holmes) right here in Cleveland. Visit Print out the pattern, fold along the lines, decorate, and voila: your own iconic Kelly bag....right here in Cleveland.

Who needs a store....when you can have a PDF? :)

Blueberry Nights Opens (5/23)

Friday May 23rd, 2008

The vibrant colors, rich soundtrack and inspiring scenery make My Blueberry Nights a total Memorial Day Weekend MUST SEE.

My Blueberry Nights is a 2007 film directed by Wong Kar Wai, starring Norah Jones and Jude Law. It also features Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, David Strathairn and Cat Power.

Asian Market

On a recent lunch excursion to #1 Pho (3120 Superior Ave), I couldn’t help but notice the large “Grand Opening” signs plastered along East 30th for the opening of “Park and Shop” a new Asian Market in Downtown Cleveland. As we sat and ate I couldn’t stop thinking of the new grocery store, so we had to stop in on our way back to the office and explore the vibrant, oh so delicate packaging designs.

As we pulled into the parking lot a few things automatically made this new find a complete “gem”...I mean what other grocery store would welcome your arrival with concrete Foo Dogs (Imperial Dragons) at the front door?

The store was brightly lit and clean with the faint sounds of eighties American pop music in the air. The staff was excited to have visitors and we were even more thrilled to explore.

With no intentions of shopping (I should know better), I discovered an assortment of ginger candies, lemon wafer cookies, pastel hard candies, and salted pumpkin seeds, all wrapped individually and with layers upon layers of design details. As we explored the entire store, including the boundless rows of noodles, rice papers and teas, we discovered more and more things we "needed." This was just a quick pit stop on our way back to the office...but I MUST go back soon for a big grocery shopping trip.

Take time out from the usual stores such as Heinens and Giant Eagle and go out of your way to explore this new market, it will most definite excite your senses! :)

UK Tunes (5/15)

Wednesday May 15th, 2008

“When I started making records,” David Ford grins, “I said I wanted them to be emotionally fraught processes, like I’d survived a war. Now I can safely say, I want to make a really easy one!” And he grins again. Or was that a grimace?

Nobody said it was going to be easy but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Songs For The Road (released in March 2008 on Original Signal Recordings), Ford’s successor to his 2006 debut I Sincerely Apologise For All The Trouble I’ve Caused (Columbia), is so good it’s worth all the pain. It’s another deftly contained nine-song package, short in time (running at 37 minutes) but epic in content. All human emotions are here – fear and loathing, love and loneliness, anxiety and release – creating a record radiating resilience and hope even if it ends with “probably the saddest song I’ve ever written.”

If you can squeeze in the concert amidst the Cavs so! 8pm at the House of Blues. For more information on David visit or for tickets visit

Sweets on the Hill

A trip to Presti's Bakery in Little Italy was such a great way to kick off the weekend. From the artichoke pizza to the Italian cheesecake, the evening was filled with great sweets and even better cappuccino.

In 1903 Rose and Charles Presti Sr. opened Presti’s Bakery. As the business grew so did their family. In 1918, Charles Presti Jr. was born. He worked at the bakery from a young age, learning the trade from his parents. The bakery moved location a number of times before settling into the heart of Cleveland’s Little Italy on Mayfield Rd. in 1943.

At this time, Presti’s Bakery remains an integral part of Cleveland’s Little Italy. Michael, is the pastry chef and the fourth generation working at the bakery. They still use only the freshest ingredients with no preservatives to produce fine quality baked goods. Still made by hand with the same recipes and techniques originally created by Rose Presti.

Next time you feel like a cannoli or gelato...head east to Presti's ( 12101 Mayfield Rd. Cleveland, OH 216.421.3060

Apology PIzza (5/08)

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

In case you haven't heard by now....Papa John’s Pizza issued an apology to Cleveland and the Cavaliers for making T-shirts with LeBron James’ number and the word “crybaby” under it.

To apologize, Papa John’s will sell Cleveland residents a large, one-topping pizza for 23 cents TODAY. The 23 is an homage to James’ jersey number. The company also will donate $10,000 to the Cavaliers Youth Fund. The pizza chain’s T-shirts were featured during the Cavs’ games against the Wizards on Friday in Washington. Wizards fans taunted the Cavs, who won the payoff series that night in Game 6.

Oh Karl... (5/09)

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Rodolphe Marconi’s new documentary on Karl Lagerfeld, “Lagerfeld Confidential,” has generated a lot of interest for his candor in interviewing Mr. Lagerfeld about his sexuality and his reputation for being cruelly unsentimental in ending relationships of which he has tired.

“Usually when people are 70 years old with a lot of money, a career and celebrity, they stay at home with a bodyguard in a beautiful house with a swimming pool,” Mr. Marconi said. “But Karl is always in danger. He is all the time alive, curious. For me, curiosity is intelligence.”

The documentary also features, Anna Wintour, Nicole Kidman, and Baz Luhrmann. Celebrate Fashion Week Cleveland with this new documentary about the legendary fashion designer, “the haughty high priest of haute couture” according to the BBC. The film takes a revealing peek under the white ponytail and behind the thick shades to reveal an imperious jet-setter who loves books, cinema, and the visual arts as much as his creations for Chanel.

Celebrate Cinco (5/05)

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Olé! Happy Cinco de Mayo! (Spanish for "5th of May") The holiday commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. The date is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. A common misconception is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day; Mexico's Independence Day is actually September 16 (dieciséis de septiembre in Spanish), which is the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico.

Although today is THE day to celebrate...there are so many great Mexican food choices around town, you should take the week and celebrate.

Nuevo Acapulco (
Winner of the 2003 Best Margaritas by Citysearch of Cleveland, this local watering hole will be open late tonight to handle the festivities. With specials on drinks, including the Mango Scarlet Orange Margarita, it is sure to be a wild fiesta. Personally, I love the classic Mexican breakfast, Huevos Rancheros! Get there early, happy hour is from 4-7pm.

Villa y Zapata (
Looking to explore the heart of the city, visit this authentic family-owned eatery. The margaritas are bright green and the salsa is hot! Scene Magazine has voted them Best Chiles Rellenos in town, so go and try. There might be a line, but the parking lot is always buzzing with folks, great for people watching!

Luchitas (
In 1981, Luchita Galindo decided to follow her dream of opening her own business. After years of hard work and perseverance, she and her son Jorge Galindo opened the doors to a small Mexican restaurant on the Westside of Cleveland; their restaurant is Luchita’s Mexican Restaurant. Now with multiple locations around Northeast Ohio, this Mexican favorite will be hopping all week.

El Tango Taqueria
Hungry people, looking to celebrate take note- the food here is tasty, affordable and authentic. Large flour-tortilla burritos are stuffed with choice of meat, chicken, pork, fish or veggies. There's delicious tamale pie con pollo, a daily soup and specials. The wholesome chicken-lime-veggie soup is a meal in itself. BYOB! Located next door to Lakewood High School Field on Madison Ave.

Paladar Kitchen (
The happy hour is offered from 4-7pm in the bar area. Choose from $5 Mojitos & Margaritas, $3 Latin Beer Specials and happy hour portions for under $5. Viva Paladar!

Chipoltle (
For those of us on the run, pull up to your local Chipotle for chips, guac and a corona, or two!

If you have a favorite that I have missed, please feel free to post and spread the word.

Allison Moore (5/07)

Wednesday May 7th, 2008

When Allison Moorer ( decided to make a record of other people's songs, you know she wasn't just going to grab a handful of whatever and set her slow burning alto to them like a low flame to dry twigs. No, the woman whose very first single was nominated for an Academy Award, whose albums have been marked by an artistic restlessness and passion and whose willingness to expose her deepest truths has yielded some of pop music's subtlest, but most enduring treasures wanted to do something special - and in looking around the vastness of American music, she realized how much of the glory of women songwriters was overlooked and oversimplified.

Allison Moorer (recently live on Jay Leno) will open for Steve Earle, one of the most influential country-rock stars of the 1980s and 90s. Show starts at 8pm. For tickets call the Playhouse Square box office at 216.241.6000 or visit

Cleveland Speaks

Have you noticed the new "words on the street"? The other night in the parking lot I was captivated by one and had to know more...

“The Mind of Cleveland” is a public conversation in billboard/poster form, a conceptual town meeting where everyone has the opportunity to be heard publicly. The project employs modes of communication common in urban spaces, such as billboards, letterpress posters and the Internet. With the use of public signage, the thoughts, feelings and wishes of Cleveland residents are displayed.

Next time you see one of these bold, dynamic statement on the street, stop and think, how cool is it that we live in a region, in a country for that matter where people thoughts and opinions are not only heard but made public for all to read.

Sweet Rain (5/03)

Saturday May 3rd, 2008

Rain, sweet rain. On day three of this Cleveland downpour, take a moment and embrace the drenching outdoors and venture into the city. It's the perfect excuse to grab that favorite umbrella and those wellies you had to buy for those big spring puddles.

This morning after swimming, I needed to go downtown to pick up some things for work, so I decided instead of taking the highway to slowly venture down Detroit and investigate what new and exciting things were happening in that part of town....minus my wellies.

With a quick pit stop at Gypsy Bean Bakery (the skinny Londoner latte rocks!) I was ready to explore. The rain really does make the city look like a set from a movie. The clouds hovering over Terminal Tower and the monumental "BP" Building looking as if they are here to stay forever. As I crept through the sleepy quiet city, I wanted to make sure I reminded everyone what a great place we live in, sunny AND rainy. The bridges, the architecture, the sports (GO CAVS!) the small businesses cropping up around us is what makes Cleveland a force to be reckoned with.

Today, as most of you will be tempted to stay under the covers, all dry and warm, I challenge you to get outside and discover an area of town you may not travel to daily. I look forward to some great stories from everyone. Try and stay dry, although a little water has never killed anyone. :)

Happy May Day (5/01)

Thursday May 1st, 2008

May Day is celebrated in many places around the world. The traditions and stories surrounding May Day vary from place to place. There is, however, one thing that is similar in most celebrations - the use of Flowers!

One of the most popularly known May Day traditions is to hang a basket full of spring flowers and/or other small gifts on a neighbor's doorknob. The trick is you don't want the neighbor to see you BUT, if you get caught you are supposed to get a kiss. :)

Although this image isn't of flowers or springtime charm, it reminded me of May first and the excitement of summerTIME. Hope you have a happy May Day and enjoy this funky photo.
